The Garmin 910XT is pretty nice. There are some quirks with the pool swimming. It does great on straight swims but drills give it fits. Also if you hit lap or stop to pause it, it often adds an extra 25m or y to your count each time. Not a huge deal and still way better than counting.

Obviously it is a Garmin so it does great for the run/bike. I am sure it will do better in open water swimming too than it does in the pool.

I am not sorry that I made the purchase.

Thank you so much Bob Schwartz (I Run, Therefore I Am- Nuts!) for this lovely, funny insight into my life.

Thanks for the info. I don't mind spending the money if it is good stuff and I only have to buy it once rather than always upgrading.

Thanks

It's not cheap (but than again what tri gear is?) but check out the Garmin Forerunner 910 XT. It works for all three disciplines and is designed to handle indoor and outdoor swimming.

is there a reliable lap counter for tracking laps/distance training indoors and also is there a GPS watch out there that is good for all 3 diciplines when I start my open water swimming? so far I am not having much luck on either front.

the lap counter is especially important since I totally start to lose track after about 1/4 mile (11 laps). Its kind of a pain trying to mentally track laps when I am also trying to focus on my form.

any info would be appreciated.
